Highly depends on your area. Without specifying it, kinda a moot comment.

In Kitchener/Waterloo, DD is VASTLY superior to ubereats. I used both way too much the last couple years. DD has far more restaurants, including 95% of the ones uber eats has, and in 90%+ of cases, lower prices.

In terms of overall selection, Skip is best here though. But lacks the frequent discounts or membership pass.

Plus in terms of raw details, dashpass vastly superior to uber eats pass. eg:
Eatspass lies to you, does not offer free delivery. It charges teh full delivery price + tax on it, than discount's on the base, thus you pay the tax on delivery, not free - truly free on DD.
Likewise hte do called "5% discount" doesn't discount anything, it erases 5% of the service fee.
Doordash service fee's are variable, thsu can be higher than uber eats or lower without the pass, with the pass, you are locked into 5% service fees - and that's a true discount , no bs tax.

Also Dashpass is available for 1+ year for free if you get a chase sapphire, or some other chase credit cards. Ubereats for the same requires the US platinum card, quite a higher fee, and not sure if that works in canada. (Chase dashpass does)

A quick question if you don't mind, how sure are you of using Dashpass from US in Canada signed up using Chase CC? I remember trying it late last year, and it put my account in a very weird state and I couldn't make any new orders in Canada.
I have a Chase freedom added to my account and want to try, but just not sure if I should. Any advice? Thanks!

DoorDash has the highest markup of any food delivery app out there, you're basically just removing their markup with this deal.

I'd rather have the UE card back

Is there anything stopping you from buying $10k in gift cards discounted and making some free money? Because if I had a restaurant, that's what I would try doing.
you can't tip using credits. i have credits from previous promos but when i tip delivery guy , it comes off credit card

Why not? DashPass is a status, you activate that and it’ll be there.

I paid with GC balance with my RBC DP status and all worked fine

+1

I've never been able to find value on Door Dash. At least Uber Eats caps their service fees and offers regular promos to offset the markups.

With a decent card, purchasing $100 DD GC at Loblaws/RCSS will give you 15000 points + additional 4% back.

1000 PCO points can value more than $1 when you use it at the right time

What’s the best card to shop at Costco? 2% back?

Does GC qualify for additional executive 2%?

Good to know. I remember placing an order last week and the dashpass benefits did not take effect unless I used my rbc credit card to pay. Didn't know credits were fine as I was trying to pay with a different card.

Again. DEPENDS ON AREA. Doordash does NOT mark up ANY restaurants, EVER. Neither does UE, neither does SKip.

All restaurants set there prices. They mark up based on the revenue they lost from the service. Large restaurants can an do negotiate lower cuts, tus don't have to mark up. Small ones get the usual 30% cut, but each service differs on area, market and a billion other factors.

In my area, Kitchener/Waterloo very few restaurants i like mark up, and those that do, mark up less than uber eats. Skip is the most normal prices, but given its lack of free delivery pass or promos, it still can come out behind.

I'm a huge nerd with a billion spreadsheets that calculate this stuff, I don't make things up.

100%. Activated it over a year ago, August 3rd, still active until jan 2022.
To date saved 191.97 in fees acording to app, but in reality - much higher savings from all the dashpass exclusive promos ive got, that are not included in that total.

Paid: $0 in monthly fees.

Just remove the card from your app. activate a VPN to the US, than add the card back. it will popup the free chase dashpass. If pop up does not appear, try removing all payment methods from WEBSITE, than on APP, repeat steps.

You than MUST leave that card as default, however you can add canadian giftcards and thus use a different credit card to buy said gift cards. Balance always used before chase card.

I also have the freedom card, added it before they granted it 3 months free dashpass. I can confirm the additional $5 off per month x2 IS USA locked. It's essentially a promo that is only eligible at every restaurant in the USA, but not ones in canada.

The dashpass is locked only to US and Canada, they have no system to lock it down to 1 country atm. Regardless of if you pay or if you use chase.

Can't confirm if the VPN is even needed, I feel like it's not. I've not placed orders in the US.

If you wanna be 100% safe, make a new account with US vpn. Than follow above instructions. Doordash is very cool and does not require/lock you down by phone number. Just change the number on the other account to a fake one, does not have to be activated, and use your existing number on the new account (which you can verify by sms, but actually, you can make orders unverified and verify by email instead)

That's what I'm saying. In my experience, restaurants have the highest markup when it's through DoorDash.

To lean on your spreadsheets a little, if you're the type of person who only gets delivery when it's on special (like UE buy one get one free combined with a % off code), does Doordash make sense? It might be cheaper at the regular price, but is it still cheaper for someone who would never pay the regular price?

I guess my perspective is - I'm already pretty unhappy to be paying the eat-in menu price for takeout, let alone plus a mark up plus delivery plus tip, so I generally don't get delivery. UE still sometimes makes sense when it has good promos. Does Doordash drop to that level?
